Using the WordPress Link Manager

wordpress_add_linkOne way to easily manage a list of URL Links on your WordPress site is the built in Links Manager.  It can be found in the admin section between the Posts and Pages sections.  Adding a link is easy, just click on the “Add New” option under “Links” in the admin navigation, fill in a Name and Web Address, and click the “Add Link” button.  The other features on the screen such as Category and Target are advanced, but offer more control over how the links are displayed and function when clicked.  To have a link open in a new window, set the Target to “_blank.”    If the new links you’ve added aren’t showing up on your site, you may need to add the Links Manager “Widget” to your site sidebars.  You may also be able to select a page template called  “Links” that will display the links from the Links Manager. | Phone: 616.285.5711 | Toll Free: 800.327.3478 x167 | Fax: 616.285.5735
